“With Gresham Smith’s striking and modern design, we are showcasing pride in our community and providing a highly valuable facility for Oldham County’s residents and visitors. From the La Grange Railroad & Bluegrass Festival Model Train Show to the ‘Arts on CityPlace’ event to the premiere of the Hallmark movie, ‘The Ultimate Legacy,’ CityPlace has proven to be a dynamic site for many different types of events and has been exceptionally well-received by the public. We are looking forward to a busy 2016 and many more years of success.”
